'make install' is not the final step of the Windows Installer build, but files are picked and moved from the 'make install' target directory to the directory that gets packaged by nsis.

Mon Aug 15 13:45:19 2016, original submission: states that scenarios can be placed somewhere by "make install". For the FREECIV_DATA_PATH I think that the "make install" target does not really affect Windows, and might be the root cause of bug #20738 (=starting Freeciv outside of its own read-only installation directory does not work without a FREECIV_DATA_PATH, and starting it in its own read-only installation directory has undesirable effects on Windows Vista or later).

On Windows an installed Freeciv 2.x has a somewhere\data\scenarios sub-directory, found by running Freeciv in its own directory. What is the "make install" alternative? Or in other words, what is the result of lines 1460+1461 in Giving up on for now, please fix this page if you have any better idea where the last directory of the FREECIV_SCENARIO_PATH ends up on Windows. :-P
